AISH Seminars and Institutes
The Academy for International School Heads (AISH) offers a variety of professional development opportunities throughout the year.
Presented annually in February, this one of a kind event brings AISH members together with other guests offering a professional development session on a specific topic, luncheon, and the annual meeting. In 2017, it took place at the French American School in San Francisco on February 6. The presenter was Dr. Mark Milliron, Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer for Civitas Learning and his presentation was "Moving into the Next Generation of Learning."
REFLECT, CONNECT, RENEW. This 5-day seminar is open to all school heads, directors, and deputy heads. AISH members and non-members are welcome. Special guest presenters Teresa Arpin and Azul Torrenez facilitated a workshop titled "Powerful Learning/Powerful Leading." HEADtalks, and home group facilitators make this a truly unique event designed specifically for International School Heads and Deputy Heads. It took place July 10-14, 2017 at the Wylie Inn in Beverly, MA, USA. In 2018, it is planned to take place in Germany.
New & Aspiring Heads Institute
Is an international headship in your future? You can develop the skills you need at the annual AISH New and Aspiring Heads Institute. This 2-day event brings both new and aspiring Heads together to learn how the process of securing a position as an International School Head works; what the most essential skills to focus on are as a school Head; how the Headship is different from the Principalship; what to do in the first 100 days; and what the most common pitfalls are for a new school Head. It will take place in July 2018 at the Courtyard Marriott Boulder/Louisville, CO.
AISH often presents one-day pre-conference workshops and seminars at many regional events throughout the year. All seminars and workshops offer a specific topic designed for international heads, and aspiring heads. Information about upcoming workshops or seminars at regional association events will be posted to the AISH website as they are scheduled.
